    I know that most of antivirus are just junk, and cause problems. I need some software to make an occasional scan of my system.

    I used ClamXav but isn't free any more, is ClamAV ok?

    So this isn't very important to you.

    Have you ever found anything running an occasional scan? If not, skip it.

    Here is a recent test where BitDefender did well and had a low impact on system resources.

    I don't personally use an AV package, so cant give a personal recommendation.
